February 26th
First up today it's part four of the First Doctor adventure The Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve which was broadcast this day in 1966. Entitled Bell of Doom, like the other three parts to the story it is missing presumed wiped, so only the 5.8 million people tuning in were lucky enough to see it in its entirety.

Moving on to 1972 and the Third Doctor began a new adventure, with The Sea Devils episode one watched by an audience of 6.4 million. Finally, February 26th 1977 saw a mighty 11.3 million scarf loving people tuned in to the first part of the Fourth Doctor classic The Talons of Weng-Chiang

Join us again tomorrow for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the spin-offs aired, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Doctor Who history.
